Murray County Medical Center Named Top 20 Critical Access Hospital for Patient Satisfaction

Murray County Medical Center was recently named one of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals for Patient Satisfaction among all critical access hospitals in the U.S. by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA).

The Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals, including Murray County Medical Center, scored best among critical access hospitals as determined by The Chartis Center for Rural Health for Patient Satisfaction. An awards ceremony will be held during NRHA’s Critical Access Hospital Conference in September in Kansas City, Mo.

This ranking is determined by The Chartis Center for Rural Health based on data compiled by iVantage Health Analytics in its Hospital Index, specifically the patient satisfaction domain. The Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals for Best Practice in Patient Satisfaction achieved success in the patient perspective index on two Hospital Compare HCAHPS measures of “Overall Rating” and “Highly Recommend”.

“Murray County Medical Center is proud of the efforts of its providers and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this patient satisfaction designation,” stated Dennis Goebel, CEO. “Our results for exceptional patient satisfaction means our community can count on us to deliver the quality services they need now and in the future.”
